Seattle vs. Prince George Recap

You don't really expect good results when a team goes 0/9 on the Power Play, but that is exactly what Seattle did tonight in their 5-1 victory over the Cougars.

Seattle gets three points from Greg Scott and two more goals from Bud Holloway to lead the way past P.G.

Holloway got the Tbirds on the board at 14:18 of the 1st period when he was able to slide a Greg Scott pass through the 5-hole of Cougar goaltender Real Cyr. Just over two minutes later Greg Scott redirected a Thomas Hickey shot through the pads of Cyr for the 2-0 lead. I'd love to see the replay because I swore it should have been Holloway's goal.

Seattle led 16-4 in shots on goal after the 1st period... but I just have to point out that Riku Helenius got screwed. I have no idea who is keeping the shots on goal but I noted at LEAST 3 or 4 saves by Riku that were not recorded in the first.

David Richard then made it 3-0 in the second period when he finished a Prab Rai shot from in close. Holloway then got another towards the end of the period on assists from Scott and Nielsen and Seattle led 4-0 at the 2nd intermission. Seattle led 32-14 in shots after the 2nd.

Dana Tyrell ended the shutout bid by Helenius by smacking home a rebound at 4:16 of the 3rd. Riku had a solid game and nearly came away with the shutout.

Sena Acolatse finished the scoring with just over 5 minutes left in the game on a wicked slap shot through traffic off a feed from Lindsey Nielsen. Sena's shot was a blistering low slapper that beat Cyr just inside the blocker side post.

Holloway, Nielsen and Scott all ended the game +4.

Seattle controlled this one from start to finish and capped what has likely been their best weekend of the year. The effort was really good from Friday through Sunday and they earned 5 out of 6 possible points.

0/9 on the Power Play is still a concern and I have said all along and will continue to say that if this team could ever figure out how to score on the PP they would be as dangerous as anyone.

Let's Go Birds Three Stars of the Game.

1. Greg Scott
2. Bud Holloway
3. Lindsey Nielsen

Honorable Mention: Thomas Hickey (2 assists), Dana Tyrell, 1 goal and was the only real force for P.G. Riku Helenius, stopped 26 of 27 and as I mentioned got screwed on the shot total by at least 3 or 4.

In the Arena:

1. Bud Holloway
2. Greg Scott
3. Thomas Hickey
